Factory Tours


The perfect stop between Reykjavík and Akureyri


Our factory is situated in the beautiful Miðfjörður area, in the small town Hvammstangi, halfway between Reykjavík and Akureyri, just 5 minutes from the main Road 1.

Stop by Hvammstangi, enjoy what the town has to offer and take a look at our factory!


How is your sweater made?

At KIDKA we offer you the opportunity to witness the interesting process of clothing production, and with it a unique insight into an Icelandic company.

KIDKA sweaters, cardigans and accessories are knitted by knitting machines. The process of washing, brushing and steaming the wool gives it a soft and fluffy texture, but at the same time doesn’t lack the important feature of keeping its owner warm all year round.

We invite you to take a look at the production and the machines, watch us work and pose questions.
Everybody is welcome!
